We’re so happy to see all the support pouring in for the campaign; be it a Mumbai student running a book collection drive or mothers sending in their children’s old encyclopedias. Here’s just a quick update on how the project is coming along and well, how our office currently looks! (But, we’re not complaining!)
We have also received an extremely positive response from publishers and we’re all set to start placing orders for more books.
You may still contribute to, #EbasePench, our campiagn to raise funds to set up a library in Pench Tiger Reserve, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
(The E-Base library is a humble attempt to open up the world of books to the students of Pench. The importance of reading for a holistic education cannot be discounted and the E-Base library strives to fill this gap that exists by bringing to the students books from all around the world. With a choice of books on biodiversity, science, environmental conservation, Gondi folktales and encyclopedias, in both, Hindi and English, the library not only augments their general awareness and knowledge of their surroundings and its relation to the world but also inculcates an appreciation for their rich Gondi roots.)
